I am actively looking for job opportunities that require expertise in data visualization and visual analytics. To learn if I might be a fit with your company or organization, please check out my profile below:
Curriculum Vitae (detailed)
I am a graduate student in Computer Science at the School of EECS, Oregon State University. I am working toward Ph.D. degree in the area of Information Visualization, under Dr. Ronald A. Metoyer. My research interests are Information Visualization for End-Users, Multivariate Visualization, and Web-based Database Applications.
To know more about my work, please check out my Research & Development, Publication, Teaching and Coursework below:
Research & Development
My proposed thesis work involves interactive visualization techniques to help domain experts understand the diversity of a large set of multivariate objects and its cause and effect. To develop and evaluate the techniques, we have taken a user-centered design approach, in which visualization reseachers collaborate closely with ecologists, microbiologists, and management researchers.
I also collaborate with the aging researchers of the OSU’s Center for Healthy Aging Research in the Personal Understanding of Life and Social Experiences (PULSE) project, whose purpose is to examine psychosocial and health factors that may affect adults’ abilities to self-regulate health and social goals over time. I am particularly interested in studying the effects of visualization feedback on promoting goal progress in older adults.
Recently, I’ve joined the Home Energy Awareness Lab at OSU and helped with the study on the use of feedback technology and information visualization to help raise awareness of domestic electricity usage.
During Fall 2010 and Winter 2011, I did my internship at the SAP Labs in Palo Alto, CA. As a UI Developer Intern for early prototypes of SAP Smart Meter Analytics, I helped implement and test user interfaces and visualization components using Flex. I also collaborated with the development team to integrate the user interface into the backend infrastructure.
As a consultant, I’ve helped develop the websites for the Take Charge programs, whose primary goal is to engage a broad base of residents in Corvallis to reducing energy use through no-cost and low-cost actions.
